NX 18-55mm VS 20-50mm comparisons

I compared both 18-55mm and 20-50mm lenses at 20mm and 50mm.
I used NX10 and took in RAW files. Custom WB in all apertures.

18-55 VS 20-50 at 20mm: Center 100% crop

18-55 VS 20-50 at 20mm: Top left corner 100% crop

18-55 VS 20-50 at 50mm: Center and bottom right corner 100% crop


20-50mm is sharper in all aperture in center area.

20-50mm is sharper in f3.5 ~ about f9, f11, and 18-55mm is better in f11 ~ f22 in border area.

I am quite surprised that 20-50mm shows very sharp images from maximum open aperture.
